Lessons

Mike Slominski and Matt Stricker are both offering lessons here at Albatross all winter long. Lesson pricing and format is detailed below, as well as the credentials for both Mike and Matt. Both instructors have an immense amount of experience in the golf world, and they both are eager to help you take your game to the next level!

Single lessons as well as lesson packages are available. Single lessons will be $74 per lesson. A lesson package will consist of three lessons, with a package price of $212. Lessons will last a half hour with an instructor on one of our PGA Tour Golf Simulators. With each lesson you will also receive the half hour immediately following your lesson for your own individual practice session, putting into play what you just learned in your lesson. Lessons can focus on areas of your game ranging from your driver to irons to short game improvement. Lesson packages allow you the opportunity to work on multiple areas of your game, as you improve over the winter and prepare for hitting the first tee at your course in the spring.

Lessons are available for juniors and adults of all skill levels. Mike and Matt have experience with both junior golf lessons and camps, as well as lesson experience with amateurs of varying skill levels. Lessons at Albatross offer a very controlled and private setting and are a great way to start playing golf or to fine tune your game during the winter.
